The house was exactly as advertised, except much better. Having never travelled to St John before, we didn't know what to expect. Susan had instructions laid out on where to go and what to do. It was great. Although the master BR and living space were on separate floors (the stairs are outside), it was never an issue. The house was well-appointed for a couple and was in a great location. It was convenient to all the beaches. Although a little scary getting there initially, I never felt the need to use 4WD after the first day. After it rains that's a totally different story! I highly recommend this cottage for couples and small families.
